it disappointing. now, i think paychex is a well-run business. while the company is facing a tough environment, the quarter wasn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination. it beat it by a penny on a 40 cents basis and 2% year over year. last time i thought that was the hugely important key metric. however, the growth year seems to be decelebrating. especially since that's why i'm thrilled to have marty, the chairman and ceo here to talk about the quarter. mr. mucy, welcome back to "mad money." >> good to be here, jim. >> i've got to oh tell you, i've been through these various downgrades and it's almost like they thought that the payroll numbers had dropped so we have 6.5 to 7% unemployment. the fact is we always thought it was this number that we cared so much about which was the actual 2% revenues number. it suddenly didn't matter. all the people looked at was you guys didn't capitalize on the gigantic increase on employment on the matter. >> we thought it was a good quarter. it met our expectations, client base and client retention all improving. we felt good. it was a good start to the

the stock such a horror show. i think that could be a terrific buy especially in an environment where the price of gold keeps going higher. what is this company? it's sandstorm gold symbol sand. speculative canadian mine financing business. think of sandstorm as beinging a financer for gold miners. we're in an environment where miners have a lot of trouble getting financing. lenders aren't lending them money. they need more capital. take advantage of this high gold price. that's where sandstorm comes in they will give a gold miner immediate money up front in exchange for the percentage of the future gold produced. in essence buying themselves a piece of the production stream. they also make a fixed ongoing payment for the gold they receive down the road. that payment is incredibly low, usually around $500 an ounce. gold is worth about $1700 an ounce. why don't you think of sandstorm being a smaller version of a stock that blew my mind when they came on the show, franklin nevada. that's another company that invests in gold royalty streams who's ceo opened my eyes to this whole concept.
